Clubs Program
Building bravery and sisterhood
After school clubs for girls to explore coding in a fun & friendly environment.
What's a Club?
Clubs are free after-school programs for 3rd-5th and 6th-12th grade girls to join our sisterhood of supportive peers and role models using computer science to change the world.
  • Grades 3-12
  • Beginner to Advanced
  • FREE
  • 1-2 hours per week
    After school, on weekends, or during the summer
  • Sisterhood
    Join a safe and supportive environment of peers and role models where girls learn to see themselves as computer scientists.
  • Code
    Learn the concepts of loops, variables, conditionals and functions that form the basis of all programming languages.
  • Impact
    Work in teams to complete a computer science impact project that solves a real-world problem in your community.
    • Grades 3-5
      Clubs can be run entirely unplugged, with optional online components. Girls read and discuss one of our best-selling books, and then complete creative challenges. Free curriculum and support provided.
    • Grades 6-12
      Require a desktop or laptop computer and reliable internet access. Girls build coding skills and community as they create a computer science impact project. Free curriculum, meeting guides and tutorials, and facilitator support.

    "I was given the opportunity to talk to women who have successful careers in the field. They made me understand that computer science isn’t just about 1’s and 0’s, it’s about combining your interests with technology to better the future."
    Myisha Kinberg, Alum
    We're looking for Facilitators!

    Code at Home!

    In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Girls Who Code is making free computer science activities available for download to anyone who wants to access them. We release activities every Monday — some online, some offline, of varying levels of difficulty. Each activity features a woman in tech who pioneered innovative technology.
